    • Abstract:
      The article features the clothing firm Brooks Brothers in New York City. The company, the oldest clothing store was founded in 1818, when Henry Sands Brooks first opened his new shop at Catharine and Cherry streets in downtown New York. The styles of virtually every manufacturer of men's clothing were influenced by the company.
